What REALLY Happened To Kriss Kross?
 

 
Since 1998 no one has heard from them; were they blacklisted or something? You could even argue that Kriss Kross brought southern hip-hop to the mainstream. - Keith Clark

Also consider that it is almost impossible for "child rappers" (that catered to the Nickelodeon/Kidz Bop markets) to transition to the "adult rapper" audience. (See Kris Kross, Bow Wow, Lil Mama, Nick Cannon, Lil Romeo, etc.) Most times, they are treated as a 'novelty'...

There is a built-in dynamic that Rap music is premised on the hustles and struggles of (adult) life-- something that most of these 'child stars' avoid since they gain fame and riches prior to puberty. The only exception in this instance is Lil Wayne.

Who expected Kris Kross to stay around until their 30's and 40's anyway? Just look at the image that they created for people to remember them by...

They didn't have that longevity factor. Plus they were kid stars and its hard to transition to adult stars especially with the image they had.

They straight up vanished though......it was kinda weird. Their last album was dope and I'm sure they could've put out at least one more, they're were on the decline but were still relatively popular amongst kids who were my age at the time (9-12 years old).....but after Young Rich and Dangerous they were gone without a trace for about 10-15 years. No interviews, no failed promo singles, nothing.....they just disappeared.
they wanted to live regular lives.they both went to college.1 of them got into production.who wants to be known as kriss kross tha rest of their lives.it looks like they were actually able to make some decent money.why keep tryin to live in tha past
